Shadowed Gaze

Moons would walk through shadowed gaze unheard,
It seemed amiss caught fire our leaves bettered grue,
With each orbit, in light's shot a sight was all but had,
When finally hills are seen; craters spell their name,
Hence each speck of flame our energy walking away,
Thus came hand-in-hand, the moons in wake, light in awe
Spread wings from halo light, of great force walked Moons,
These are the happ'nings Lendayem describes and takes:
Though it was never futile such gaze unheard be now reborn.


Even whilst the clouds fly their way,
Whilst the wind kept brushing past,
Nor did the mills cease their work,
Nor did the wood dislodge, break;
More the finest fibre within, taut;
Its breathing and illumined glow,
You can feel its light tremble slow,
But no more was it cast aside gone,
Always lit, but no spark stained light,
Better lone, lest light eclipses dark.
Then the wind shall blow its fibres loose,
Glow in the dark, each drop of rain fall:
Colour each fibre and see them wave,
Write your name, the wind commands,
Beneath the cliff is that name you know,
As we descend through the name,
Then its core shall be sought then held,
That core remaining star glimmers dim,
By whose shell and label remains unphased,
Not even weather shall dim it further,
We shall feed it adventure and enlighten it,
Not once faltering on the love we give,
Even if not to take, yet still light's given;
So once even the Sun can see it,
At least each cloud can reflect your rays.


A chain turns cold round my waist,
Whose iron bonds give weight tenfold,
Nor right, nor left a turn I bid anew;
The sight I see is one enchained,
In every sound I speak a wisdom
Whose echo casts a shadow on me,
But never I said don’t walk away!
These bonds that break, my fate resigns,
Mute are the words of child he thought,
To pass adult now still his mind abides,
Though once I was able, now I am not,
With all I will so my heart endures,
Break the chain with warming heart,
Cast the Sun’s rays mine eyes do kiss,
Ere blinded by life anew, who could tell?
Rather I this much blind than be unseen,
Link by link, double bond by bond: blessed
Be those who have believed, but never seen.
